Ponce de Leon, FL — A multi-agency attack leads to the knockdown of a large fire involving multiple structures off of County Highway 183 South in The Valley.
At 6:22 PM on Friday, February 7, 2020, Walton County Fire Rescue, Argyle Volunteer Fire Department, DeFuniak Springs Fire Department, Liberty Volunteer Fire Department, and the Walton County Sheriff’s Office were dispatched to a residential property on County Highway 183 South in reference to a structure fire. Firefighters and deputies arrived on scene to find two motorhomes and one fifth-wheel camper trailer fully engulfed in flames.
First responders quickly jumped into action and had the flames extinguished within thirty minutes, keeping the fire from spreading to a nearby barn. Fortunately, the recreational vehicles (RVs) were unoccupied. So, no one was injured in the fire.
